Halloween is just around the corner and that means an all new adventure at Club Penguin online. Through October 31st, members of Club Penguin can investigate a haunted mansion, hunt for ghosts and possibly even become one.
Long ago, Gariwald VIII went missing along with his mansion. Gariwald has a more than a passing resemblance to his great nephew, Gary the Gadget Guy. Gary gives the player clues to find five keys hidden in the spooky mansion. After finding each uniquely shaped key, the player’s penguin is given Ghost Goggles, presumably invented by Gariwald. When wearing the goggles, ghosts will appear on the screen as well as a special ghost door. Once a penguin enters the ghost door, they receive a new background and access to a special Halloween catalog of items for free and paying members. All members can buy a ghost hunting outfit that contains canisters to throw at ghosts to catch them. Paid members can enter a device that looks very similar to the Lazarus machine in Casper and get turned temporarily into a ghost. All members might also find themselves face to face with the ghost of Gariwald himself.
However, it also enjoyable just to explore Gariwald’s estate which resembles a more famous haunted mansion on Disney property, complete with graveyard, set dining room table and a crystal ball that looks just ready for Madame Leota to come. There’s no official word on whether there are 999 ghosts haunting this mansion.
Club Penguin has also kept the annual Halloween traditions of decorating everywhere, having Trick or Treat at what is normally snow forts and showing the scary short film series, Night of the Living Sled.
